FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The Japanese yen continues to lose ground vs. the greenback on Wednesday, with the USD/JPY reclaiming once again the psychological handle at 120.00.

USD/JPY in multi-day peaks

The pair is advancing for the third consecutive session so far, prolonging its bounce off last week’s troughs in the 118.00 neighbourhood and retaking the 120.00 mark (38.2% Fibo of 125.86-116.46), all against the backdrop of renewed JPY-selling.
